Not sure if this counts, but I like Homsar's existance being created by the person who sent the email and in a way Strong Bad. The person who sent the email made him by making a spelling error. Strong Bad made him by not making it just be a spelling error but a character.

I don't think it does count, but it is still hilarious how Strong Bad can make up characters and then they really exist in later toons. Eg. Senor Cardgage :senor:, Trogdor :trogdor:(he plays a Trogdor video game even though he made Trogdor up), Peacey P, Sweet Cuppin' Cakes :ehsteve:(he imagined making the cartoon, then actually watched it on t.v. with Homestar), and there are probably more. I just love the lack of continuity in all homestarrunner cartoons.

My favorite toon is sb e-mail Sibbie, where Strong Bad will never ever write a song about the Sibbie, because he totaled the boom box when it started playing, "I really don't like freakin' Sibbie...".

Also, I like "The House That Gave Sucky Treats" and "Jibblies 2" because of Homsar.

Bubs burning evidence and then offering Homestar a pancreas always struck me as rather sinister. Definitely overlooked in the whole scheme of the Bug in Mouth toon though ha.

And in Looking at a thing in a bag, the guys are looking to get someone to bring them drinks. They get homestar to do it, in a plan that involves Bubs, who could have just brought the drinks himself.

Yes, that was hilarious. Bubs "donated the drinks to the cause", so the whole homestar trick was pointless! I think this does qualify as a not-so-obvious joke.

I like a lot of the labeling in some Teen Girl Squad comics.
Best one is in Issue 11, 'Canoe Reeves'...
That makes funny on the inside of my body.

This is just a personal one for me, but the word "Biscuithead". Every time I hear it said I laugh. To me it sounds like a racial insult and most likely that's the idea, but it's just so weird to hear it said and expect it to be something negative. It seems like a continuation of "Biscuit dough hands man" (http://www.hrwiki.org/index.php/Biscuit_Dough_Hands_Man) and all of it makes me think of the brothers Chaps playing around in the kitchen making jokes about biscuits.

I lafed in bissness trip when strong sad was on that box & next to him was a sign that said ''Reducing your bisnesies carbon footprin is not a matter of buying evryone elses smaller shoues.''

The fact 5:05 PM is "way past Thompkins' bedtime (according to TGS 13).

The labeling of objects in TGS is always great. Like Bill Bellamy in TGS 7 and Mr. Drummond in TGS 8.

I always get a laugh out of Strong Bad's listing of Super Nintendo game titles in his sleep.

I think today's SBEmail, "fan club," qualifies as an extended joke, insofar as the people who will find the jabs at the fandom particularly hilarious are those most invested in the fandom. SB often makes fun of the email sender, but this time he subtly took a jab at everyone watching the cartoon at once. Now that was clever!

I don't know if it's supposed to be a joke, but I found a new favorite in pet show:
Marzipan, Pom Pom, and the King of Town do not enter animals into the pet show, but since the KOT is the least popular character he is the only 1 of the 3 to get disqualified. Again, I don't know if this was intentional.

The KOT was stretching the rules more than Marzipan and Pom Pom were. At least Marzipan's "pet" was alive, and Trivia Time resembled a live animal. Food is just... food.

Perhaps a subtle commentary on human bias?

Perhaps!

I liked :kot: dressing up as the reveran al sharpton. And when SB makes fun of video games becoming saturday morning cartoons and "Secret collect" is on, anybody who's seen the old super mario show makes that stuff 3 times as funny.

In the fanclub email. Marzipan's easteregg. When she said: "I can only do it 11 times!" it was obvious that the "I can do it, I can do it 12 times!" phrase would be used.

What I laughed at was how the DNA evidence was started by you kiddies who kept talking about it. You do know Mike and Matt read the forums, right?

There's no evidence for that at all. Not even DNA evidence for it. Not saying it isn't true, but...

Anyway, I'm fairly sure they started that running gag on their own...

According to the commentary for the DNA Evidence toon, the second and thrd ones were just callbacks to the first, but then they decided to make it a running gag and make a toon to tie it all together. No mention of the forums.

I got one from the newest toon: Non-Sequitur Champ.
Whilst Cardgage's second attempt, "Oh, Lifty Fernandez" is rejected as coherent, it is revealed in the credits that Lifty Fernandez is a real person, meaning he did in fact make two coherent sentences. :-D

I don't think it is though. There's no verb in that sentence.

It's a coherent thought, though, just not a sentence. He could have been going somewhere with it. (But, this being Senor Cardgage, he probably wasn't. ;))

does this one count
in "the house that gave sucky treats" when you give homestar circus peanuts, and then he starts dancing and singing the circus theme, then the door closes, then rings, and he's still there dancing

I always like how the number of items in that soapbox Homestar's always standing on gets progressively larger each time it appears.

Here's a good one!
That part in "Crying" where Homestar says "yeah, you stay over there."
I figured that was a play on how Homestar is always talking to someone in the field when Strong Bad shows up.

I liked Homestar's little "Aww man, it melted." from that caffeine sbemail.

Or that thing with "fingers" and "50 emails" where Strong Sad was killed by Strong Bad.

In "unnatural", Homestar said "Bubs is gonna turn us all into ants, and later showed up saying "Let's go jump in some pants!" and he was holding a leaf.

Okay, sorry for bumping this thread, but something just dawned on me, although I'm not sure if you can really count it has "not-so-obvious" or it was just me:
In Death Defying Decemberween, when Homestar attempts to offer his cup of hot Jones to the viewer (in front of the TV), he actually does offer it... that's why Strong Bad had the cup and drank from it later (or at least this is one way to interprete it). It took me forever to realize this. :blush:
